Maybe this is just my biased opinion but social media in middle school has drastically decreased social skills in my students. They often times don't know how to determine who is a good friend nor how to be a good friend. Sigh, no you cannot just

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

A few year ago, I was presented with an opportunity to build the counseling department from the roots. All of us counselors were brand new and it allowed us to make this department EXACTLY how we wanted it to be. So consider my TPT products my Pinterest, blog, and Instagram as a form of my diary as a day in the life as a zealous middle school counselor. I love what I do and I wouldn't trade it for any other career, even on the challenging days!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I work at a diverse, Title I school and many of my students score to having high childhood toxic stress (ACEs). What works for me is a combination of Solution-Focused Therapy and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, this allows me to reach the majority of the students quickly and efficiently.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am a strong believer that organized, intentional curriculum as well as a data drive program will set the counseling department up for success. I thrive on planning and analyzing, some may call me a nerd, and I am okay with that!
